Les Petits Chefs make salted caramel spread

Salted caramel spread made by kids on eatlivetravelwrite.comMmmm… salted caramel spread! It was the last session of the Petits Chefs this week for the school year and I wanted to end the year on a sweet note. The kitchen has been under renovation and so, we’ve had no oven for the past term – it’s been difficult to do anything on the sweet side (baking). We did make jam though, and it got me thinking… A while back, I made this salted caramel spread which I figured, being a bit easier than jam, would be a perfect way to end the year. Plus, cute pots of deliciousness to take home? Bonus!
